The New Jersey Yankees are a showcase travel baseball organization started by baseball professional Paul Magrini. The program is geared towards player development and college showcase teams which will put our players in front of college coaches. From there Coach Magrini will be a consultant through the college recruitment process, based on his 3 years as a Division 1 college coach. The Yankees will be run like an organization with different levels and age groups catering to each individual player's needs.
The Yankees will have a 18U Senior Team, 17U College Showcase Team, 16U Showcase Tournament Team, 15U tournament Team, and a 14U Development Team in the upcoming 2016 season.
Coach Magrini has coached and developed top players to the collegiate and pro levels. Check out our Showcase Team Alumni Page under Headlines at the top right of this homepage. Players have found the right fit at the Junior College, D1,2, 3 levels and have received scholarships.
I have been involved with Baseball since I was 5 years old and it has been the love of my life since. I have been in baseball as a professional since I was drafted as an 18 year kid out of high school and have been working as a player , coach and instructor at the professional, collegiate, and high school level for the last 20 years.(My bio is under headlines)
I know there are a lot of choices out there when it comes to travel baseball teams, and I want to share with you what I have to offer.
First, I have been through the process myself as a top 100 player in the country coming out of high school and was the 130th pick overall in the draft. I don't tell you this to brag, but to explain that I know what it"s like to be recruited by the top college baseball teams in the country and be followed by professional scouts as an amateur. I have taken official visits, make a college choice and sign a national letter of intent. I then had to make a decision whether to keep my college commitment or sign a professional contract for a six figure bonus. I also made sure I went to college and got my degree while I was playing through the Major League Baseball Scholarship Plan.These were tough decisions to make as a young kid, but with the help of my parents and one of the best "advisers" I could ever had Ed "The Faa" Ford I made my decision to go pro.
At the end of my playing career I became a pitching coach at a Division 1 school and did this for 3 years at two different programs. So I have been on the other side of the coin, recruiting kids , being at showcase tournaments, congregating with other college coaches to see what they are looking for.
I have also been a head coach at a Group 4 school in North Jersey for 3 years so I respect the relationship between high school coaches and travel teams. I believe they can work together in getting the best for their student athletes.
I have been a travel showcase coach since 2005 when I was one of 5 teams from New Jersey to attend the Perfect Game national tournament in East Cobb, Georgia. As you know now there are about 30 teams from Jersey going now.
I have coached and helped many young student athletes reach their goals and move on to Division 1 scholarships to major programs around the country and well as at the Division 2 and 3 levels. (See Showcase Team Alumni under headlines)
When you are making your choice for a team I think it is important to know who you are getting involved with and ask questions. With the Internet it is easy to verify coaches resumes, and I believe it is important to be around good baseball people that can truly help your son.
I will put my resume up against anyone in the business. I will give you my best to help your son along with his development as a player and help along with the college recruitment process. I will give you advice from both the player and the coach's view.
With that being said I hope that you will make the New Jersey Yankees your choice!
